Stanislaw Molka

AGE: 94 • Manville

Stanislaw "Stanley" Molka, 94, passed away peacefully on Sunday, December 1, 2013 at the home of his daughter and son-in-law in Fairbanks, AK. Son of the late Antoni and Antonina (Maslak) Molka, Stanley was born and raised in Poland. As a young man he was conscripted as a forced war laborer in Germany during World War II. He met his future wife, Janina Cicha, in Germany where they were married following the war. The couple and daughter, Czeslawa, emigrated to Australia in 1949, and in 1959 the family settled in Manville, NJ. Stanley moved to Alaska in 2005 to live with his daughter and son-in-law. Stanley took great pride in working hard to support his family at various jobs over his working life and retired from JM in 1984. He found pleasure in caring for his home and garden and left happy memories of his efforts in the Costello garden in Alaska. He was a faithful communicant of Sacred Heart Roman Catholic Church in Manville.

Stanley was preceded in death by his devoted wife Janina. He leaves behind a loving daughter and son-in-law, Patricia Czeslawa Costello and her husband Paul of Fairbanks, AK; a cherished grandson, David Costello and his wife Christine of Fairbanks, AK; three adored great grandchildren, Scout Russell, Oliver Costello, and Elsie Jane Costello; nephew Walter Serafin and wife Jasia of Flemington, their children Michael and Christina and granddaughter Noelle; and close friends in Manville.
